PhD for research project ‘Algorithmization and transformation of work of

academic medical professionals' (1.0 FTE)

Job description The high-tech environment of academic hospitals is increasingly shaped by the use of algorithms for medical diagnosis and treatment. The introduction of algorithms is a transformation process which redefines work, professional roles and work relations in hospitals. Academic medical professionals in these hospitals are key actors since they are directly involved in the development of algorithms but, at the same time, their medical work is affected by these algorithms. This ethnographic study investigates the reconfiguration of academic professional work in the high-tech setting of algorithmicized academic hospitals and the implications for the organization and quality of healthcare.
